About Me

Hi,
I am an ofsted registered childminder in the barnet area.
I offer a pick up and drop off service locally around Barnet for parents.
I have completed the childminding course at Barnet college and have been Quality Assured by Barnet under their quality assurance scheme.
Other qualifications such as paediatric first aid, safeguarding and homebased childcare are all up to date.
I worked as a teaching assistant in a primary school in Camden before training to become a childminder. I was in this post for 11 years and throughly enjoyed every minute.
I worked with children ranging from 3-11 through from nursery up to year 6.
I have worked and supported children of various ages and abilities and worked with many different support programmes set up by schools to aid children's learning and development.
I have had my children previously with childminders so I know the importance of ensuring you make the right choices when it comes to childcare for your precious child/ren.
I can provide care for your child that would be stimulating , educating , nurturing and fun with a purpose built playroom with direct access to the garden.
I try to create a good balance between outings, indoor and outdoor activities as well as focused activities.
I regularly attend local playgroups, parks and open spaces in the local area and am a member at Willows Farm. I work to the development matters scheme and follow the guidelines of the EYFS framework ensuring your child is regularly observed and that their next steps of development are followed through.
I currently do school pick ups from Whitings Hill School and could also accommodate Grasvenor and St Andrews.
I work alongside another registered childminder and an assistant from my home making our setting unique and flexible with plenty of hands on deck.
I like to provide a home from home environment that shows affection, inclusion and nurture for your child where your children are happy and well cared for.
We can also offer a pick up and drop off service if required and currently collect from different points in High Barnet.
I currently work off an online system called Babysdays that creates daily diaries and updates of what we get up to during our days which is a real success with parents and ofsted ensuring that parents are kept in the loop daily.

We have recently had Ofsted inspections which have found us securely good in all areas and meeting all ofsted requirements expected.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like any other information regarding the service I am providing or to come for a visit.

Many thanks
Lisa

Was so pleased to find Lisa to look after my child.
It was a very hard time as a first time mum to leave my child to return to work but after meeting Lisa and her beautiful home I felt very much relaxed and at ease.
I was always kept up to date with daily activities and daily trips to willows farm, parks playgroups etc
I received a weekly menu so I knew in advance what he would be eating
She has a lovely spacious home with a huge garden
I would completely recommend Lisa to anyone, thank you so much for everything, you are amazing xx

Lisa and Pari are our registered childminders who work together. Like all new parents we were apprehensive about leaving our daughter with someone new when I returned to work. However we couldn’t be happier with Lisa and Pari. They are both genuinely warm, caring and our daughter is more than happy to leave us on a daily basis to stay in their care.

The environment is a lovely home setting with a large garden with a structured learning experience for the children, with different monthly themes. They use the ‘Baby’s Days’ app where on a daily basis I receive updates on what the plan is for the children during the course of the day. This can vary from going to a local farm, to arts and crafts, free play, exploring new textures and the list goes on. I am also made aware of how often my daughter has naps, her food menus etc. What is really fantastic is that my husband and I receive daily photographs of our daughter engaging in her daily activities and having lots of fun with her carers and the other kids. This has really made me feel at ease since I returned to work, as this confirms how content my daughter is in their care.

I’ve seen our daughter develop and grow hugely since I returned to work and I can’t recommend Lisa and Pari enough. We would truly be lost without them.

Pari and Lisa have been taking care of our daughter for almost a year. They provide an excellent setting which has shown in how much our daughter has developed since she has been with them. They were excellent in helping her to settle in and follow the same routine we have at home. They also provide good nourishment with fantastic home cooked food . The system they use to update us is very helpful. They have also been so credible and helpful with drop of and pick up - we really couldn't ask for more.

Lisa and Pari have been great with our little girl. Too great as she rarely wants to come home now. They provide a safe and happy environment where she has thrived. Can’t thank them enough!

Lisa and Pari have looked after our little one from the age of 10 months. They have been incredibly inspiring role models for him, setting out positive values which are definitely noticeable in his development. Needless to say, he adores them and looks forward to the time he spends with them. Their frequent trips to Willows Farm and playgroups has given our son the confidence to explore the environment and nurture his curiosity. We are incredibly lucky to have found such perfect childminders and would strongly recommend them.
